Christine has been a practitioner and teacher of the Ashtanga Yoga System for for over 22 years. From 1997-2014,  founder and director of Vermont’s only dedicated Ashtanga Yoga studio, Bristol Yoga. She now resides and teaches in Montauk, New York. http://www.ashtangamontauk.com Specializing in the integration of the Ashtanga system of asana with the principles of Ayurveda and the depth of Yogic philosophy, Christine offers students a unique perspective into developing a personal practice for a more joyful and vibrant life.

Christine is a certified Ayurvedic consultant and educator. As a teacher and practitioner, she is devoted to creating health and inner peace by fostering a sense of interconnectedness with each other and with our natural environment.

When you study with Christine, you will find yourself engaged with a teacher that integrates mindfulness and humor, strength and fluidity, alignment and intuition. Christine is passionate about the teachings, and brings a gentle, compassionate, and light-hearted, yet powerful, hands-on approach in the classroom.

Christine is blessed and authorized to teach by her guru, the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore. She graduated from Amherst College with a degree in Biology. Christine also completed post-graduate studies at the Kripalu College of Ayurveda in Lennox, MA, and the Dixit Clinic of Ayurveda and the Mumuksha School of Ayurvedic Massage in Mysore, India.

 

My teacher Sarah Hatcher, director of the Mysore program at Meadowlark in Edinburgh gives the following lovely words :
‘I met Christine in 2004 when she came to Bozeman, Montana for a workshop. I liked her expert instruction and knowledge of breath and bandha; her teachings made a huge impact on how I continued to practice no matter what was going on in my life. Christine was the first person to share with me that practice was about breathing and moving; finding ease and meditation in the smallest or biggest of practices: it didn’t need to be big to be special.
I furthered my studies with Christine and travelled to Vermont two years in a row (2007 and 2008) to study with her and Nancy Gilgoff during their annual primary and intermediate adjustment clinics. Christine welcomed me into her home and cared for me like a sister.
When I went to Mysore in 2008, Christine was there as well and having her there studying and practicing made my trip even sweeter.
Christine to this day is a great mentor to me on health and diet, practice and lifestyle and most importantly, she is a dear friend. During my pregnancy with Dashiel and post part I’m, Christine guided me on diet and wellness making sure I took care of myself during that time.
Don’t miss a great opportunity to study with one of the most highly respected and knowledgeable Ashtanga yoga teachers and Ayurvedic specialist.’

Saturday 8th April 2017
Eddie Stern
Led Primary Class and Lecture

An amazing opportunity to practice and learn with Eddie, an educated, practiced and wise yogi !

8am- 10am      Led Primary Class £30

10.30am – 12   Lecture £30

Lecture : Yoga and the Nervous System

According to the earliest references of Yoga in the Upanishads, the purpose of yoga is to steady the sense organs, and move our awareness inwards towards Self-knowledge, rather than towards the ever enticing and changing objects of the world. In this lecture we will look at an overview of the presentation of the nadis, the different types of nerves, according to Yogis, and their corollary systems according to Western medicine. These two complementary systems are very important for maintaining health, homeostasis, our ability to listen and communicate well with others, and find a sense of peace within our own nervous system. The lectures lead toward an understanding of how some of the most inner benefits of asanas, pranayama, and chanting are actually activating our nervous system in profound ways.

Eddie Stern is an Ashtanga Yoga teacher, author, and lecturer. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
